Are Your Deer Starving To Death?

Take a look in the mirror and be honest about how long and difficult this winter has been. Now multiply that by 100 and you've got an idea of what the wildlife you hunt is going through right now.

It's that time of year when everything seems dull and gray, and the only place you want to be is wherever you're not. Think about it ... is that not the premise behind Spring Break? The darkness, the cold, the snow. The calendar says "March" but the weather still says "January."

Well, the wildlife you hunt is going through the exact same thing this time of year, only it's about 100 times worse. Nowhere warm to escape the snow, no reruns of "Sons Of Anarchy" to watch and no hot meals to cut the chill. This is the time of year that will set the stage, based on the health of your deer and turkey herds, to make or break your hunting seasons.

But you're not completely helpless. Growing Deer TV's Grant Woods offers some tips and suggestions to help your whitetails beat the late-winter hardships.
